Litebook Elite Hand-Held Light Therapy Device
The effects of winter blues or seasonal affective disorder (SAD) are well recorded. SAD happens mostly in fall and winter, when the daylight hours are reduced. You might suffer from symptoms such as mood swings, low energy, loss of interest in your day to day activities, or be sleepier than usual.
Light therapy is a common treatment option for SAD sufferers. There are many different products on the market depending on your needs and budget.
I like the Litebook Elite Hand-Held Light Therapy Device. It is powerful, yet little. It comes with powerful LEDs that create a strong, but soothing light. It is a daylight replacement device you place about 12-20inches in front of you. The beam of the device should be directed at your open eyes and kept there until you feel improved symptoms, such as better mood, alertness etc. The device has a convenient timer function for 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes.
Overall, if you want to improve your overall wellbeing and energy levels during the fall and winter months with light therapy, the Litebook Elite is a handy device. It comes doctor-recommended and is easy to use. It comes in a nylon carrying case and can easily be taken along on your travel or even your workplace. In my opinion, this is a great product at a good price, which will make the world of a difference to combat your winter blues symptoms.
If you suffer or have suffered in the past from an eye disorder or disease, it is advisable to consult your doctor before using this device.
